Code:
Main Entry: con·tin·u·umPronunciation: k&n-'tin-yü-&mFunction: nounInflected Form(s): plural con·tin·ua /-yü-& /; also -u·umsEtymology: Latin, neuter of continuus1 : a coherent whole characterized as a collection, sequence, orprogression of values or elements varying by minute degrees <"good"and "bad"...stand at opposite ends of a continuum instead ofdescribing the two halves of a line --Wayne Shumaker>2 : the set of real numbers including both the rationals and theirrationals; broadly : a compact set which cannot be separated intotwo sets neither of which contains a limit point of the other

 

So doesn't that indicate that you do not have a continuum if you leave a gaping hole in the middle, where 16-bit MCU exist?

Maybe instead FSL should call it "The Controller Chopped-Off-Ends-To-Save-Money". Now I am not saying that there is anything wrong with focusing on only these two families (it would save money for us all). Just saying that the word "Continuum" does not fit.
